During Folk Week, life in Broadstairs really is set to music. In the parks, pubs, gardens and on the beaches and promenade- there really is a festival vibe in the town – nobody who arrives in Broadstairs during Folk Week wonders whether there is an event taking place – it’s inescapable.
The Concert Marquee is where you’ll find all the headline acts performing, located in the middle of the town and a ten-minute walk from the campsite. Once you’ve arrived in Broadstairs – you can walk from venue to venue – all within a beautiful English seaside town.
There are over 500 events throughout the week, many of them are free
